Welcome to the Alice Bouton obituary. If you didn't know me, read no further- life is short enough no matter how long you live. For the rest, thank you for being there for me. My husband told me my strength was being a true listener, so it was therefore difficult for me to write this.
I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1942. I grew up with my brothers, Ray and Gordon. My parents were Ernie and Alice Saron who provided a wonderful and loving home. During college, Ray brought home a friend, Tom Bouton, who remained my best friend for 58 years. Marriage and Firestone brought us to Akron where we raised three lovely children-Alice (Barry Boos), David (Rose), and Kathy (Jeff Davis)—all unique and all a blessing. At this time, I have six grandchildren, again each a special gift—Allie and Brandon Boos, Noah and Grace Davis, and Breanna and Andrew Bouton. To you all I give my love and wish you well as you pursue your way through life.
To my friends I can only say thank you for being who you are. There is so much more I feel but they charge by the word. To the various churches I have belonged to, thank you for your warmth and guidance.
And to those of you whom I didn't get to know, please, please lead a life of love and support. It is what makes the world worthwhile. So long and bless you, Alice. There will be visitation from 1:30 -2:00 p.m. on Saturday September 12, 2020, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church followed by a service. Private inurnment will take place at a later date.
